's healthcare law. president obama said a difference with republicans may be too wide to reach a deal. it may ultimately be the differences are just too wide, if their position is we cannot to any revenue or we can only do revenue if we get medicare or social security or gut medicaid. if that is the position, we probably will not get a deal. >> president of a mess, it's also, senate democrats released 'seir 14 -- president obama comments also came as senate democrats released their 2014 budget. colorado state lawmakers have given final approval to some of the toughest gun control laws in the country. the measures include a limit on ammunition magazines to 15 rounds, forcing gun buyers to pay for background checks, a requirement that domestic abusers surrender their guns, and a ban on obtaining concealed-carry permits online. the democratic governor has pledged to sign the measures in the law. in egyptian government inquiry has found the regime of ousted president mubarak was behind nearly the killing of all 900 protesters during the country's uprising. according to the associated press, a fac
's sort of related to something called the law of large numbers. and if we have an event that we repeat over and over, a random event, and we do it independently many, many times, we find that it's going to eventually converge to a finite number that's between zero and one, and we call that the probability of observing the event. so the law of large numbers basically tells us that if we do a random event, a random outcome, over and over, it'll eventually converge to a well-defined probability. >> so we could take a very simple example, right? we could just do coin tossing. so i toss a coin, and if i get heads, i get a dollar. if i get tails, you get a dollar. so if we did this a million times -- a million is a pretty big number -- we would expect that after a million times i'd get about half of them i'd win, half of them you'd win, so that we should be even. >> exactly. and if you think about it, the first time we play the game, there will only be one winner and one loser, so there will only be one outcome. so we can't use our probability equation, because the probability is, one, that
